The audio on the discs is a disappointment, we have a very low key Dolby Digital 2.0 audio track that really has nothing going on. As this is a dialogue driven film the voices are intelligible and easy to understand but, past that there is nothing really going on. It would have been nice to have a Dolby Digital mix and it could have been put to good use in at least two different scenes in the film, one in downtown London and towards the of the film out on the ocean. Also included are English and Spanish subtitles.
Overall the transfer for the film is very good but there are some issues. Presented in a 1.85:1 widescreen transfer that is not anamorphic which makes no sense at all. The film overall also had this kind of dark and dreary look to it, I can’t figure out if this was intentional or accidental though, colors are somewhat muted and the film is a little soft overall. There are no transfer artifacts and the disc is free of any film grit.
If you select the Lions Gate logo on the main menu you are taken to a trailer for the film other then that there are no other special features to be seen. The menus are simple stills with no score but, they are easy to navigate.
This is a very well written and engaging story. The acting is excellent and overall this film was enjoyable. What holds it back from being exceptional is that the story lacks any kind of lingering afterthoughts, the film ends and that’s it, there is no real discernable moral afterthought that engages you past the end of the credits. This in my opinion is what sets apart a great film from a good film. Nonetheless it is a good film and is a least worth a rental.
